7D to 5D transition: help with AF choices
Jan 5, 2014

I've been using a 7D for mainly nature shots lots of BIFs and other quick reaction shots as well as flowers etc.
On the 7D I use just the center focal point in the AF and that works well. 
My wonderful wife bought me a 5D and I'm just starting to go through the manual.  I'd appreciate any recommendations on what AF options to use that will behave like the 7D in terms of where the 5D will autofocus.  Based on a quick reading I've set the camera to use the center AF point and the 8 adjacent pixels.
any other suggestions to help me get up to speed on the 5D would also be appreciated.
